This WG bid on a RB I’d set up recently, when I was hoping to fit in a punt around a meeting. As it turned out, the response to the RB was pretty poor, and this WG was probably the best option of the few that bid. I thought that I’d give her a ring just to discuss and confirm the details of the RB with her, and generally to get a feel for her before even thinking about accepting her bid. Her profile also said that she’d prefer to communicate by phone in any event. The phone call was made at around half past midday, and this is pretty much a word-for-word account...
Tight Pussy Tiffany: (groans)...hello?
Woodstock: Hi, is that Tiffany?
TPT: (more groans) huh?
W: Is that Tiffany?
TPT: Mmm, yeah
W: Hello Tiffany, Sorry did I wake you up? ...
W: I‘m sorry, do you want me to call back later?
TPT: No, no, it’s ok..who is it?
[TPT now starts to sound more awake, and speaks with a noticeably chavvy, South London / Kent accent. I give this description as a statement of fact, not one of judgement
W: This is ***....you recently bid on my reverse booking
W: You put in a bid on my reverse booking...for tomorrow
W: You bid on a reverse booking of mine...on Adultwork...a reverse booking
TPT: Did I?
TPT: Hmm, I don’t remember...when did I do that?
W: 2 days ago.
W: 2 days ago
TPT: Did I?
TPT: You sure?
TPT: I don’t remember...I must have been desperate.
W: You must have been desperate?
W: Erm...ok, well alright, listen don’t worry about it then (decision now made
W: Don’t worry about it...I’ll assume you’re no longer interested...
TPT: When was it for ?
TPT: I don’t think I’d be able to do it anyway
W: Ok, fair enough...are you already busy then or something?
TPT: No...I’m just not sure I can be bothered.
TPT: I’m not sure I can be bothered.
W: You’re not sure you can be bothered?
W: Riiiiight, ok...but why would you bid on a reverse booking, if you can’t be bothered?
TPT: I dunno...I must have been desperate..
W: Ok...Well, I’m not...bye
TPT: (unintelligible grunt)...
It’s probably worth adding that she has bid on a previous RB of mine. To be fair, looking at the rest of her profile, I probably wouldn’t have accepted her bid anyway, but that’s not the point – other punters may have done. She may be a serial bidder on any RBs which are remotely close to her, irrespective of whether or not she is genuinely interested. More importantly, she clearly couldn’t give a monkey’s how time-wasting bids may impact upon the punter. I appreciate I’m giving her a negative review without actually seeing her; but in my book the attitude she displayed in the phone call tells me everything I need to know. It’s bad enough that she bids on RBs without having a serious intention to honour the bids, but to tell the actual punter that she simply can’t be arsed...
Make up your own minds guys, I know I have...
